+ - ADA to force Netflix to provid closed captioning on content-> 2 2

Submitted by Shivetya
Shivetya writes: A judge has decided that the American Disabilities Act requires services like Netflix to provide Closed Captioning support for any video it streams on its website.

The implications to other provides is immense as well.
